About the Event

Spring is finally here, and what better way to welcome the warmth than by getting our hands dirty? Soil-blocking is an innovative and resourceful “new/old” method of seed starting. While the history of humans planting in soil cubes goes back 2,000 years, this tried-and-true technique has many benefits for the modern gardener. Unlike pots and trays, soil blocks do away with expense, storage clutter, and waste- making them environmentally friendly! The space between the blocks allows seedling roots to naturally air-prune, encouraging them to establish in the ground more quickly than those grown in a container. Join us for this family workshop where we’ll mix, press, and plant-up the building blocks of our gardens! Perfect for ages 8+

This program is free, but registration is required. Attendance is limited to aid in social distancing.
